Aparato#0 El ciego lince
(...) shows images that capture a movement; in the process of development; a turning, exploding movement. This verb, to capture, has been built into our customary language as the normal one to use for images. We talk of “screen captures”: as if our screens housed such a violent movement, such feverish traffic, that only the metaphorics of crime or the hunt would admit. An image is captured as would be a delinquent or an animal offering resistance. A lynx, say. But this is ultimately an empty metaphorics, missing anchorage in the real, because nowadays any device in the multiscreen world today incorporates the function capture or screenshot. One must always be in a position to share what is going on via the fleeting frame of one's screen(s). Accordingly, the base appliance that we are operating with, Aparato #0, incorporates that functionality. That's why the image flow doesn't really offer any resistance; as little as a blind lynx would offer a hunter.

Aparatos [Apparatuses] is a series where I work on the relation between image and viewing devices. In Aparato #0_El Ciego Lince [Apparatus #0_The Blind Lynx], devices that are a cross between a frame and a showcase are presented showing images that are half advertising photography and half documents of an action.
